What’s cookin’ for 2017…

bregenz-to-the-lighthouse2016 has been a lot of fun–from our NOISE-BRIDGE tour in the U.S.A. and Canada, to various concerts in Oldenburg, Reutlingen, Barcelona, Ghent, and (OF COURSE) the Stuttgart area–I am thankful for a busy and fulfilling year, and excited for what’s to come! In 2017, I’ll be singing Trapani in Antwerp, Stockhausen in Durham, a world premiere by Klaus Dreher in Stuttgart and Tübingen, a world premiere by Luis Cordera Puzo in Barcelona and Stuttgart, some more Aperghis, and then a world premiere opera at the Bregenzer Festspiele! The next several months are going to be a wild ride, and I can’t wait! Hope to see you out there.

Yesterday, I, along with my colleagues Simone and Matias, had a blast recording Ligeti’s Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures at the Saarländischer Rundfunk in Saarbrücken, Germany!

Neus and I won a prize!

CF & NEC in Barcelona

This weekend, Neus and I won third prize in the Karlsruher Wettbewerb für die Interpretation zeitgenössischer Musik 2014 (Karlsruhe Competition for the Interpretation of Contemporary Music 2014).  We are thrilled!  We performed Helmut Lachenmann’s Got Lost and songs 1-3 from Wolfgang Rihm’s Opus 1 song collection.  Can’t wait to perform in the Zeitgenuss Festival in Karlsruhe next year!
